Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: top 500 drummers

Yeah I just realized I never even addressed the Billy and Mickey part. As far as the dead goes, I would take Billy over Mickey any day but in general drummer terms I have to say that there are tons of drummers better than both. I love the way Billy played in the 70s...especially without Mickey but I don't see him even on the same level as many of the jazz drummers of that time or Mickey on the same level as many of the percussionists of that time....let alone of all time..the dead were amazing as a unit but as far as solo skill and viruosity goes Jerry was the only one I can put on any all time list if I'm being honest.
